The arm and foot movements performed by the Kalinago dancers on the island of Dominica are almost identical to those performed by dancers of the Cordon Spiritist sect in the remote rural region of Monte Oscuro in Cuba. These same arm and foot movements are performed by participants in the traditional dances of the various Arawakan tribes people on Guyana in South America such as the Lokono and the Wapishana. It is important to note that although the Kalinago are typically identified as…Continue
Takahi Our Relatives
Our sacred song Taino Ti Oakia Ata:Song to Atabey has become a very popular hit in the field of children' music in Germany and in other areas of Europe.

The Taino male deity YokaHu, in our opinion, far from being a typical western-type paternal, immortal "almighty god" in the style of the Hebrew Jehovah, is, in fact, a much more human-like entity, con-substantial with humanity itself and subject to a very human-like life-cycle like ours which begins with birth and ends in death, and then starts all over again…Continue

It is the homeland of ancient Indigenous tribes and is now the home of mixed-race people in whose veins runs the blood of Indigenous Natives, European colonists and…Continue

Takahi My Relatives I wish here to share a rare glimpse at the inner workings of the Caney Circle over 20 yeas ago. This is a copy of several attachments that accompanied the minutes of the board meeting of the Caney Circle that occurred on October 28 1991.
